VBS 2019

Our "To Mars and Beyond" VBS was another huge success! We had 120 students and 100 volunteers together for the week learning about how the love of God is so much bigger than we could ever ask or imagine! As we talked about going beyond with faith, boldness, kindness, thankfulness and hope, we also gave above and beyond and raised over $900 for MorningStar Mission throughout the week.


We capped off our week with a "VBS Fest" on Sunday, June 23. We invited everyone back for our VBS Themed worship at 11:00 full of VBS music, energy, and a special message brought by our Intern, Brian. This was followed with food, fellowship and games for the kids. It was a great day and so fun to see families in church together who had never been here before.


Everyone in the church has a hand in our VBS program each summer. From dollar challenges to donations to prayers to snacks for volunteers to decorating to being here during the week to VBS Fest to cleaning up, we sincerely thank you for your support and time, energy, and resources. See you next summer!!
